I love lots I think my favourite is sun flower seed and yoghurt drops


What is your favorite thing to do?

I love to chew things and climb

What would you like to tell people about Syrian hamsters they may not know?

Syrian hamsters don’t like to live in the same cage like some hamsters smaller do. Our teeth dont stop growing at the front so we chew lots and we have 12 more molars at the back of our mouth 6 on each side for chewing and grinding seeds so a total of 16 all together.

oh, hi!
oh, hi!

We are nocturnal and love to play at night in the wild it would be that there is less predators at night and so we would go at night and its also because during the day were we originated from iy it hot during the day so we come out at dawn and dusk this is when we are at our most active. And we could run 8 miles a nigjt in the wild its why we love our weels and or  balls to play in.


These are some fun facts I know that some people may not know.
